Buy Or DIY: The Adnet Mirror





I need one of these Gubi mirrors in my life! I know these mirrors have been around for a while, but I'm just now showing up to the party and I'm in love. It's a simple yet sophisticated accessory that makes a beautiful statement on it's own. No pictures or additional accessories are necessary.  Love that. However these are quite pricey (of course), so I can't help but to think a good DIY might be in order. Maybe this IKEA mirror, a couple of vintage or vintage-looking thick belts, a tube of good glue and a can of spray paint would work? Thoughts??

  5. I'm on board! I adore these mirrors too. I guess the issue would be finding belts that matched the mirror thickness...
